08 Freeman Ryo-fu Chardonnay ($35) ☺☺

The Freeman Chardonnay is a blend of three vineyards, predominantly Heintz and Keefer Ranch. They come together to produce an excellent example of a European Style Chardonnay. The initial nose of of baked apples with a hint of citrus and almonds. The taste is lush tannins coupled with mangoes and pineapple all with a  beautiful long finish. The acidic finish reminds you of the European Chardonnays and gives it a unique style. Don't overcool this wine and it will reward you with lots of enjoyment.
